The biggest sporting event of the year. And the most powerful gaming console man has ever created. (Until the next one, at least.) Is there a better combination to watch Super Bowl LIV than to pair it with an Xbox? Perhaps not.

Super Bowl LIV — that's Super Bowl 54, for those of you who don't do Roman numerals — is scheduled to kick off at 6:30 p.m. Eastern time on Sunday, Feb. 2, 2020, from Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Fla. The game will be between the Kansas City Chiefs of the AFC, and the San Francisco 49ers of the NFC, and all of the Super Bowl 2020 events will be broadcast on Fox.

Watch Super Bowl LIV online on Xbox with a Live Streaming Service

Another easy way to watch the Super Bowl online using your Xbox One is with a Live Streaming Service that includes your Fox local station. Beyond Super Bowl LIV, you will get a variety of other great channels streaming live included too. Many of these services offer free trials too, so the Super Bowl might be the perfect time to try one out. Let's take a look at these options. The services listed below are both available for your Xbox One.

Use a VPN to watch Super Bowl LIV

In addition to offering you tons of privacy features, a VPN can help you view shows that may not be available locally in your area. Streaming services often block their feeds if you're not in America. If you are a subscriber to a live TV streaming service, and looking to stream the game even though work is taking you out of the country on Super Bowl Sunday, a VPN might be just the answer you need.

A VPN, or "Virtual Private Network" sends your internet traffic from wherever you are through a specific set of servers and back into the United States.

Does a VPN sound appealing to you? It's easy to get a great one from a subscription service that, for a few bucks a month, will tunnel your traffic through your choice of a variety of locations. There are a bunch of great options out there, but our favorite is Express VPN. It's easy to use, affordable, reliable, and well-rated.
